I'm just reading through these posts wondering if anyone here actually owns and frequently uses the Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360


I played the Xbox 360 for about 2-3 years then got the ring of death, but I already was an avid PC gamer way before that. I now have a PS3 but the PSP is probably my most played out of Sony. I loved that thing. As for the Wii U, nah I am done buying consoles, there is literally no point owning one any more.

I think more people are gonna buy Xbox One more than ANY console. Just because there are tons of Halo fans.

Its not that there are more Halo fans, believe me I am sure that there are more Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty and Mario fans. But they only reason you think there are more Halo fans, is because Halo fans are whiny babies. They complain that microsoft screwed over Halo. And its true Microsoft did screw over Halo and so you hear Halo fans whine.
But the reason you don't hear so many fans about the other games is because they didn't screw up.

I'm a big nintendo boy, so I choose Wii U. You just can't beat LoZ. I've never played any of them, though. XD I'm judging by the looks of them. I have a Wii and an Xbox 360, but the Xbox One is still iffy. I'm just afraid they'll add the DRM back in.


Probably the worst argument I have ever heard. And what's funny is Zelda doesn't even look that great in comparison with games like Skyrim.

To be fair neither of these three looks very good. They're all bland plastic boxes. The PS4 is the marginally better looking console IMO, and that's not saying much


I agree, my PS3 looks better than the PS4 IMO and the Xbox One looks like a brick. Almost like a black wii and an old Xbox put together. Its like they entirely forgot what the Xbox 360 looks like and they went back to the old Xbox. Ha but I guess it is the Xbox One so makes sense lol

Xbox One I prefer that basically. And remember these consoles are just "UPGRADES" not exactly going to take down your entire video game collection and not going to ruin your life of gaming.

Say that again! I dare you!




New poll out says that 80% of gamers would prefer the PS4 even if the Xbox lowered its price to $400. If you think your favorite game has a low population now, just wait 'till you get an Xbox One.

So I went to Comic Con and played a few Wii U demos. Pikmin 3 looked predictably great, Bayonetta 2 was pretty fun, Sonic Lost World was alright. Controller's still an awkward block, though. Even Pikmin, which I thought would benefit from the map, played better with the Wiimote pointer.

By the way, remember, the PS3's reception was like this before it was out...


And the PS3 was bad...how?

It's got Dead Rising 3, and Halo 5


Oh wow, exclusives, oh man I wish PS4 had those. Oh wait, it does. And considering the sorry state of Halo 4, I think I'll be easily able to switch over to Destiny.

you can watch Live TV


Uh, I can already do that. And I don't have to switch around a bunch of cables.

Snap Mode


Wow, two tabs at once. I'd rather not try that out considering the Xbox One has only 5GB of RAM for applications.

Dead Rising 3 is looking like it totally misses the point of the silly Dead Rising games. I can totally live without it if I can have the thousand other bleak zombie survival games out there.

The one thing to look forward to for these next gen consoles


Oh Man that is going to look sweet with new graphics. I can't wait.

you can watch Live TV, without switching a bunch of cables

Man that must suck, if you are complaining about that now it must mean you are already switching cables around to watch TV. I have my PS3 and my PC connected to my TV through HDMI I would go crazy if I had to unplug something everytime.
Sounds like a personal problem though

I said the PS3's Reception pre-release was exactly as the Xbox One's is now. And, the PS3 wasn't god awful. So there.


Yeah, but did they act like absolute jerks to their fans ("What if we don't have constant internet access?" "Yeah, we got a great console for that, it's called an Xbox 360&quot until they had no choice but to change? Did they make it more expensive just because they felt a need for a mandatory camera that adds almost nothing (considering the PS4 has gyroscopes in the controller). When Sony's biggest exclusive got wanted to try something new and quit that franchise (speaking as an "if" now) did they trust one of their biggest prizes to a game company that had never made a single game?

Oh, and was the PS3 more expensive than their competitors AND have a paid subscription that gives you nothing other than allow you to play online?

The PS3 was more expensive. And it had like zero games when it came out. It wasn't always so much better than the 360.

Except the 360 is better IMO.

Also, the PS4 doesn't have nearly as many promising exclusives and yet it's a crap ton more popular.

The PS4 is more popular because

A. It's cheaper
B. Microsoft screwed up the whole DRM thing way more than their little backtracking can fix

And I don't think this

PS4 doesn't have nearly as many promising exclusives

Is true at all. Did you see their E3 presentation where they had a ton of indie games playing at the same time? The PS4 is far and away the more popular console for indies. Besides, none of the Xbone exclusives really excited me. Halo is a big pile of meh, Titanfall doesn't have single-player, Dead Rising seems to have had all the fun drained out of it.

Titanfall


I'll be playing this on PC. Not actually an exclusive.
